Chapeltown, Leeds United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 27, 2012 -- The recent reduction in Feed in Tariffs have left many people wondering if their Solar Panel project in Manchester is still viable. The decrease in tariff was larger than expected and has lead to some market uncertainty.
The truth is that some marginal projects are not worth pursuing, but most still are, as solar panel projects in Manchester still remain a great way to beat future energy price rises as well as give a guaranteed government payment.
Solar Panels in Manchester will continue to benefit from a government feed in tariff rate of 21p per kwh. Based on a typical £10,000 system this would still give you a 15% yield based on the feed in tariff and energy savings. With the average interest rate on savings accounts languishing at around 3%, and energy prices increasing again, the choice is clear.
Energy savings by consuming the electricity you generate vary, as it depends on individual energy usage. Businesses with light daytime usage will benefit the most, but householders can still benefit by a typical reduction of 50% of their electricity bill by moving as much usage to during the day. Typical examples being dishwasher and washing machine cycles, electric heating and cooking.
